for (int h = 1 ; h < 10 ; h++ )

txt[v] = new TextField(1);

perhaps elsewhere in your program something is trying to access one of the
arrays at element[0], which would be null.

run your applet - when the npe is generated, open the java console and you
should see which line number is generating the error.

try taking everything back to 0-based, and see if you still get the npe

Or you didn't initialize the array?

panel = new Panel[numberOfPanels];

Anyway, this isn't Swing specific - moving to Java in General (beginner)...

null pointer exception. That mean when you declare variable but you not create and you using it. In context I think you not init element in array.
